Did you just get a big rate increase on your Silver Plan
with Covered CA
and you make too much $$$ to get subsidies?
Californians who do not get financial help and buy individual coverage directly from their health insurance company with FREE agent support will not be charged the CSR (Cost Sharing Reduction – Enhanced Silver) surcharge.
In addition, Covered California consumers with Silver plans who do not receive financial help to pay their premium can also avoid paying the surcharge by switching to a different metal tier or buying near-identical Silver coverage directly from a health insurance company, with Free Agent Support. Covered California has approximately 65,000 unsubsidized consumers enrolled in Silver plans. Covered CA Press Release 10.11.2017
